Default Massachusetts trails

If anyone lives in the MA - RI - CT area and dosn't feel like driving to Pittsfield to use a state trail- I have about 25-30 miles of wide trails around me, feel free to park at my house.

From my back yard I have many miles of wooded trails that lead onto the power line grid and an open pit, then you can ride misc. trails for about 10 miles down the grid, and then it branches off to a dozen wooded atv trails that go on forever. I've lived here for 10 years and never had or seen any problem. Pretty nice trails, and I'm always looking for someone to ride with!

I live in the forest and can fit about 20 vehicles in my drive way-

I'm in Douglas, Ma 01516

Send me an email for my address-

If you are going to have an open invitation to anyone to use your land for access to riding trails, I would suggest having people sign a wavior that you are not liabel if they get hurt on your property, to protect you. Seeing how who posted this for anyone and everyone, I would be cautious.

Anyway, sounds cool with all those trails, kinda sucks I don't live anywhere near you. Got any pics of your trails?

It's not all my land- it's state land that goes through some private property- Owners of the private property have an agreement with the state & national grid to designate area's for hunting & atv access- There's never been a problem, and these trails are ridden by dozens every day. But it's not technically a designated State sponsored ATV park. I live in a very rural area- no one cares what you do. Come - park & play

Sure thing- what state were you in when the hunter gave you crap?
Tell him to move along- all these hunters around here ride atv's as well and sometimes think they are king sh*t. 90% of these trails are owned either by state- and allow registered atv's or by National Grid- and they could care less. as you aren't tearing up the property behind the uxbridge power plant or gas line-
Like I said- I've been riding these trails for over 8 year on a regular basis- along with dozens of other local atv'ers I've never had an issue. I was out all week end riding- I'll post some pics-
